The FCC Needs to Hear Your Voice

Al Franken_NetNeutralityThe FCC launched its Rulemaking process related to Net Neutrality. Over 100,000 people have responded so far to the earlier versions of the Rulemaking.

The revised version released today incorporates some of the feedback but the FCC needs to hear your voice.

Please take the time to read the documents and let the FCC know that you want the Open Internet protected!

Below you will find links to several PDF documents:

Net Neutrality - The Movie

Net Neutrality graphic-1Net Neutrality really is AT RISK. Tell your friends. Tell your neighbours. Tell your Librarian. Tell your local Pizza Shop.

The following is a direct quote from MoveOn.org

We have until May 15 to make enough noise to stop the corporate takeover of the Internet. Watch on to see what’s at stake–and invite your friends.

The length of a sitcom episode, The Internet Must Go is funny, engaging, and full of truth. It stars Al Franken, The Daily Show‘s John Hodgman, and former MoveOn.org Executive Director Eli Pariser, and it just won a Webby Award—the Internet’s version of the Oscars—in Online Film & Video for Public Service & Activism.

 

(Full disclosure: This award-winning video was made by a friend of MoveOn—Gena Konstantinakos, who in addition to being a terrific filmmaker is married to Eli Pariser.)

‎Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vermont) receiving Public Service Award from 'United for Libraries- ALA'

#NLLD14 Washington DC. You won't find this on Sen. Leahy's web site for some reason...

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) accepted the 2014 Public Service Award, given by United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association (ALA), on May 5 during National Library Legislative Day activities in Washington, D.C. He was introduced by Vermont State Librarian Martha Reid.

The Public Service Award, United for Libraries’ highest honor for legislators who support library issues, is being given for Leahy’s introduction of S. 1599, the USA FREEDOM Act, a companion bill to H.R. 3361 (also the USA FREEDOM Act). H.R. 3361 was introduced by Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), who also received the Public Service Award.

99% of Libraries Provide Internet Access - YALSA Infographic / #NLLD14 - What Libraries do for Teens

We are in Washington preparing for National Library Lobby Day #NLLD14 .

Most instructive regarding teens issues is this link I saw on Twitter posted by @AutoGraphicsInc

I think it is an info-graphic every librarian and person in your community should see.
